the hague - Dozens of millions of chickens in the Netherlands suffer from pain, including joint problems, ulcers and gastrointestinal disorders. This is not done now because there are no registered pain killers available for chickens, reports Wakker Animal based on research.
The animal welfare organization wants the causes of pain to be addressed and that good pain relief is available soon. 'Wakker Dier finds that there is social disinterest for pain and pain in broiler chickens. '
Now unregistered medications can now be used in 'unacceptable suffering', but according to Wakker Dier, no one uses this arrangement. This is because medicines must be from the bodies of chickens before they are slaughtered. From unregistered medications it is not known how long it takes.
